Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters didn’t hold back when discussing Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’s harsh criticism of her anti-Trump comments over the weekend; saying the leading Democrats were “willing to do anything” to preserve their power.
Waters was speaking with MSNBC’S Joy Reid when she was asked to comment on Schumer’s critique of her calls for the public harassment of senior Cabinet officials, saying her rhetoric was “Not American.”
“Well, I’m surprised that Chuck Schumer, you know, reached into the other House [of Congress] to do that. I’ve not quite seen that done before, but one of the things I recognize, being an elected official, is in the final analysis… leadership like Chuck Schumer will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership,” said Waters.

MAD MAXINE: Waters Calls for ‘PUBLIC HARASSMENT’ of Trump Cabinet Members
Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters called for the “public harassment” of senior Trump aides over the weekend; urging her supporters to “push back” against the President’s cabinet members at “restaurants” and “gas stations.”
The liberal lawmaker was addressing a crowd of supporters when she unleashed on top Trump staffers, telling left-wing activists across the country to let them know “they’re not welcome anywhere.”
“And so, let’s stay the course. Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” screamed the Congresswoman.

HELL FREEZES OVER: Pelosi SLAMS Maxine Waters’ ‘UNACCEPTABLE’ Rhetoric
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi slammed Maxine Waters for her “unacceptable” rhetoric against top Trump aides Monday, saying her calls for the public harassment of senior cabinet officials were beyond the pale.
Pelosi publicly reprimanded the left-wing Congresswoman on social media just hours after Waters urged her supporters to harass Trump staffers at “restaurants” and “gas stations.”
“In the crucial months ahead, we must strive to make America beautiful again. Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea,” tweeted Pelosi.
